fIRC 3 Status

(02 / 06 / 2011) I’m currently rewriting fIRC (v3.0).
http://code.google.com/p/firc-chat/

Feature list (v0.2)

TODO: update feature list (outdated)

Current features:

  • Connect to irc servers such as Freenode, EFnet, Quakenet, Gamesurge and many more)
  • Multichannel
  • PM / Authserv / Whois

Connecting to the server/channel:

  • In the Main Menu click connect
  • Adjust the settings (nickname!!!) and touch connect
  • After connecting it should show the Main Menu.  Click #chat to view the channel list

Sending a private message:

  • To start a private conversation, PM a user and let him/her reply.
  • Go back to the Main Menu and select PM. It should show up in the list.

Notes:

  • Most options (such as Join channel, Channel topic, Channel userlist and Leave channel) can now be accessed with the menu button.
  • Help is now available in the channel view menu.

    Thanks!! It worked very well….I have another question: i tried to use the command /msg “botname” xdcc send # but this seems notworking. I received the answer unimplemented……unknown command.
    Are you sure that your app suports this command? And in case what I have to do to take it effective?

    • The current version of firc only supports DCC receive. Other DCC related commands (chat, send, xdcc etc) are not supported for now.

    Such a pity xdcc isn’t supported. That would be a unique feature in the playstore scenery

    Hope you are still working on this
